Meet Wim Hoff – Superhuman – Chill and Breath

My new favorite super-human is Wim Hof. I’ve been practicing Wim’s methods for a while now and can attest to the life changing effectiveness. In short, Wim holds 20 world records, including a world record for longest ice bath.[2] He broke his previous world record by staying immersed in ice for 1 hour, 13 minutes and 48 seconds at Guinness World Records 2008. The night before, he performed the feat on the Today Show.

Wim describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to “turn his own thermostat up” by using his mind.

In February 2009 Hof reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in his shorts within two days.[3]

In 2007 he climbed to 6.7 km(21,982 ft) altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes, but failed to reach the summit due to a recurring foot injury.[4][5]

In 2009 Hof completed a full marathon (42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi)), above the arctic circle in Finland, in temperatures close to −20 °C (−4 °F). Dressed in nothing but shorts, Hof finished in 5 hours and 25 minutes. The challenge was filmed by Firecrackerfilms, who make productions for BBCChannel 4 and National Geographic.[6]

Hof again broke the ice endurance record in 2010 by standing fully immersed in ice for 1 hour and 44 minutes in Tokyo, Japan.[7]

In 2011 Hof broke the ice endurance record twice, in Inzell in February and in New York in November. The Guinness World Record is now set for 1 hour and 52 minutes and 42 seconds by Hof.[8]

In September 2011, Hof also ran a full marathon in the Namib Desert without water. The run was performed under the supervision of Dr. Thijs Eijsvogels.[9]

Here’s a short video about Wim Hof and a link to his online course. Chill-out and breath…
